As potted plants

Grown in rich soil
Blossoming so beautifully
According to the master’s guidance
We are rich in his love

Although the process tideous
We become refined and polished
We become useful
As potted plants

Firmly planted in His divine hands
Grown by the husbandman
And made use in His service
Not of us but of Him

We are branded by him
Tagged by his divine name
Therefore, we have been bought
As potted plants

Not of our own will
But of him
Through the blood-price of Calvary
Through the story of the Cross
We are made like him and in him
As potted plants of his creation
We are transformed through grace
Beautified through favour
And pardoned through mercy
Our names changed – we are called Christians
